#sbfestival – Cider Pressing

volunteerAlways a popular attraction, we offer a chance to learn how to make cider on an old fashioned human powered cider press. A few cranks on the side wheel and freshly chopped fruit is loaded into the hopper. Once the bin is full, a heavy disc is placed on top and the fruit is pressed until the juice flows. Get a chance to taste the sweet resulting cider at the end of the process. If you’d like, bring apples, plums or pears from your own tree.
